My craft blog was morphing into a book blog. So I started this blog to primarily include book reviews and related challenges in which I participate. I review young adult and adult fiction, but I mention kids books here and there.

I'm done: 48 hour book challenge

This post originally appeared on my craft blog.

I completed something! Here is my summation.

Number of books (re-) read: 8

Number of pages read: 847

Hours spent reading/reviewing: 16

My comments: This was cool to do. It gave me a reason to add posts to a new blog. It refreshed my memory of what resources I have at hand. I wish I could have done more, but life got in the way this time. Next time, I might focus more on fiction books. And next time, I WILL get my kids to participate.


  1. Your website is beautiful! Thank you for stopping by Rasco from RIF...

    My mother was quite a seamstress and your website brought back wonderful memories. I will be visiting again!

  2. Great job, I hope to see you participating again next year! It's so cool, making it a family effort.

  3. Great job on your reading! I find a mix of books keeps me going longer. That and jelly beans. Come back next year!

  4. Rasco, I hope to make some memories for my daughters as well.
    Liyana, being an educator causes me to push my kids in ways that I hope they will appreciate later.
    MotherReader, I'm so glad that I happened upon your challenge. I'm already looking forward to next year!

  5. Congratulations on completing the challenge! I am a quilter too and glad to find your blog.

  6. You won a prize in my drawing! Email me at MotherReader AT gmail DOT com with your address and the kind of books you might like - maybe for your kids? Congrats!

  7. MotherReader, thanks so much! I've sent you an email with the information.
